Beach music, history enliven weekend
By Josette Keelor -- email@example.com
Music and history highlight a weekend already spilling over with festival activity. Mayfest has sprung in Strasburg and the Wine and Craft Festival will line the streets of Front Royal. But those looking for something different might find just what they need in Edinburg, New Market or Winchester.
This weekend, Theater Shenandoah will celebrate its return to the stage at the newly renovated Edinburg Opera House by performing "A Fresh Start," a cabaret featuring songs from Broadway musicals. Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Theater Shenandoah is a community theater run by Mike and Sue Home, who plan to offer four main shows a year by amateur actors and staff and possibly more programs for children, dance classes and area Scouts.
Edinburg Opera House is located at 107 Center St. in Edinburg. Admission to the play is by donation, and food and beverages will be available.
For more information, contact 984-3972 or visit www.theatershenandoah.com.
Make the weekend educational as well as fun by being part of the 148th anniversary of the Battle of New Market, in which 1,200 Civil War re-enactors are expected to take part.
Held on the Virginia Military Institute's New Market Battlefield, the event is the oldest battle re-enactment in the nation, and one of few held on the historic site.
Cap off the weekend on Sunday night at Piccadilly Public House in Winchester, where the Beach Music series will begin and continue once a month. The band Chairman of the Board will perform this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. on the boat stage outside at 125 E. Piccadilly St.
